I don't think there are any hard and fast rules about adopting a certain sex or age cat, however you should definitely look for a cat known to be good with other cats or get a kitten or a cat younger than a year. Males generally do better than females if neutered, but this is not always the case.

Naturally you'll want to keep the newcomer isolated, however watch the other two carefully for signs of re-directed aggression. They may start to squabble amongst themselves. Also use a Comfort Zone plug-in with Feliway, and be sure you introduce gradually. Again, there is no hard and fast rule about how long or which cat to introduce first.

Good luck!
